Description blah 1999-10-20 17:01:59 UTC
if the installer fails to execute the second stage off of a
mounted install image (ie, the files/libraries on the image
are not executable), it dies with SIG11 instead of offering
an error message.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Comment 2 Erik Troan 1999-10-28 15:21:59 UTC
Are you tring a hard drive install? Is it seg faulting as soon as
you enter the wrong directory for the install files?

Comment 3 u810414 1999-11-04 02:44:59 UTC
I have a simular problem installing onto a i486/100.
symptoms are ... boot off floppy image, text mode, asks for driver
disk, hit cancel, then "installing"... then Exit 11.

Fixed for next release
